Coldingham is a historic Borders village on Scotland's southeast coastline. The village has great local amenities and facilities with a primary school, play-park, community hall, post office, doctor surgery and Coldingham Priory which is steeped in history. The fantastic ‘Blue Flag’ Coldingham Beach is also a lovely all year round local attraction for surfers and holiday makers. A short distance north is the village of St. Abbs where there is a wonderful Nature Reserve and Bird Sanctuary. The cliff top walk from Coldingham to St. Abbs is simply stunning and is highly recommended. The area also has some of the best diving in the UK and attracts divers from all over the world. A short distance away is the fishing town of Eyemouth which has a modern high school and 18-hole golf course. Ten miles south, along the A1, is the historic walled town of Berwick-upon-Tweed with a main line train station, while Edinburgh is within easy commuting distance to the north.
From Coldingham village take the road signposted ‘Coldingham Bay’. Upon reaching the car park for the bay, bear left immediately after the St Vedas Hotel. Continue along this quiet lane to the very end where you will find St Abbs Haven.
